South African based goalkeeper Dennis Onyango has said a knee injury is bothering him ahead of the crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Angola on Saturday.
The Cranes first choice goalkeeper said he is worried about the injury because it is the same one that caused him problems during the busy season with his PSL team Mamelodi Sundowns.
Onyango told Red pepper that while he is in pain, he hopes he can take part in the game.
Onyango however said although he is struggling to make it on the first team, he thinks the other goalkeepers Robert Odonkara who put up a good show in the Cranes 1-0 win over Liberia last week and Abbey Dhaira are all doing well.
Onyango who has conceded less than five goals in Cranes home games in the last two years said he is keeping his fingers crossed.
The goalkeeper who has featured for SC Villa (Uganda) and St. George (Ethiopia) before said he was however happy to be back for the Cranes match after missing the game against Liberia due to a suspension for accumulating two yellow cards. He described wearing the national jersey as an honour.
